Lake County Holstein Owners Adopt By-Laws and Push Dairy Interests
Holstein cattle breeders of the county, having formed a temporary organzation on June 8, met in the village hall at Libertyville on Saturday afternoon and formed a permanent organization, to be known as the Lake County Holstein-Friesian Cattle Breeders' association.
The meeting, which was well attended was presided over by George R. White, temporary president, and Lake County Farm Advisor W. E. Watkins, temporary secretary. The first business transacted was the election of officers for the coming year, which resulted as follows
President, George R. White of Antioch.
Vice president, J. L. Nicholson of Ingleside.
Secretary, W. E. Watkins of Libertyville.
Treasurer, Thomas Eger of Area.
Board of directors: Gordon Bonner, Lake Villa; Horace Vose, Gurnee; Lloyd Ritzenthaler of Prairie View.
Bylaws and a constitution were adopted and the annual meeting, which will be signalized by a chicken dinner and other social features, was set for the second Tuesday in June of each year. Two dollars was named as the annual dues, but any dairy farmer by payment of five dollars to the state association may become a member of both state and county associations.
The new organization hopes to push Lake County to the front as a dairy district. It starts off with a good membership, while the now well known Waukesha association started off with only eight members. The organization will be untiring in its efforts to induce Lake County farmers to discard scrubs and graded stock for pure bred Holsteins. It plans to have a splendid exhibit of Holsteins at the county fair. "Accomodation sales" will be held from time to time, and "visiting tours" are planned. On these tours members of the association will visit interesting dairy farms of this and other counties getting first hand information regarding Holstein cattle.
